I worked on my Celtic Winter tonight - Whew! Her hair is much, much, much prettier stitched up than it is on the computer generated image on the chart! What a relief!! I am really enjoying this SAL - it is fun to look at everyone's progress - doing various different Celtic Ladies on different fabrics and some using different color conversions - so cool!!!
There's yet another new Mirabilia chart already! This one is Garden Beauty. I ordered her from Stitching Bits & Bobs tonight. I think I like her... a nice change from fairies and mermaids (although I do love those!) - I love to garden, which you all already know... this one covers that base for me too :-) While shopping, I picked up the embellishment pack for Jingle Bells Christmas Tree Farm, a spool of Kreinik for Mermaids of the Deep Blue, and a super cute chart I had been eyeing for a bit now, Ladybugs and Bumblebees. That was fun! Everything came up with sale prices, but they have not announced a sale yet, so I guess I snuck in early!
On ebay today, this neat hand dyed by Sugar Maple Fabrics called Oddball... it is a fat quarter of belfast linen.... I think it looks dusky and should be pretty in real life... I won it, so I will know soon :-)
Major relief also tonight - Red Sox 5, Blue Jays 4 - down to the last three games of the season and the Yankees are heading into town.... yikes, fingers crossed now!
And, my stash that came in today! I got the fat half of SMF Serendipity 32 ct opal lugana (which I am splitting with Katrina) and the fat quarter of Silkweaver Thunderstorm belfast... the pretty lugana solo from Silkweaver.... the pretty Blossoming Birdcage chart from Isabelle (thank you sooooo much for that kind favor Isabelle!!) which I think my niece may enjoy stitching... my threads of the month from Stitching Bits & Bobs (a skein of Dinky Dyes Lemon Sherbet, a skein of Olde Willow American Quaker Gold, a skein of Caron Waterlilies Sahara, and a short skein of Gloriana Rosa Linda)... oh, and my new issue of Sports Illustrated (not stitching related, but just as dear to me! LOL!)
Stitched on today: Celtic Winter and 17th Century Irish Garden (at work - until the rainstorm today knocked the power out in our building... had to stop stitching then... managed to even get out of work a little early - too dark for the clients to come in)
